Create an immersive home theater experience, enjoy smooth 4K/120 gameplay, and deliver whole-home audio when you create a home entertainment system with the Sony STR-AZ5000ES 11.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver. Seven HDMI inputs (four 8K) combine with 11.2 channels of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X object-based audio, for movies that look amazing and surround you with sound from all directions. Support for the latest in HDR technology enhances this experience with deeper blacks and rich contrast. Dual HDMI outputs and Zone 2/Zone 3 functionality allows two different rooms to watch their own UHD content, with a third zone enjoying audio playback. Playback from local or online sources, thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Ethernet connectivity.

8K HDR Cinema with HDMI 2.1
The seven HDMI inputs and dual outputs support the HDMI 2.1 specification, which enables higher quality content thanks to low-latency technologies, such as ALLM (Auto Low-Latency Mode) and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate). Video content at up to 8K resolution is supported, in addition to 4K at 120 Hz for smoother next-gen gameplay. To improve realism, the STR-AZ5000ES supports many HDR standards, such as HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision, and IMAX Enhanced.
360 Audio & Theater-Like Surround
Supporting 11.2 channels of audio at 130W per channel, the STR-AZ5000ES allows you to fill your space with enough speakers and subwoofers to replicate a theater environment. Supporting Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, object-based and height effects make compatible movie soundtracks come alive. This kind of fidelity is applied to music as well, with Hi-Res, Hi-Res Wireless, and 360 Reality Audio support, making you feel as if the artist is with you in the room.

These audio technologies are joined by room calibration technologies that work to create a sound reproduction that's custom to your environment. 360 Spatial Sound Mapping reproduces a physical sound field to emulate a movie theater or concert hall. Digital Cinema Auto Calibration IX precisely corrects the distance, angle, sound pressure, and frequency response of each of your speakers to create the ideal sound field.

Center Channel Audio
Three different center channel modes can be used to alter how this primary speaker is used when watching TV and movies. Acoustic Center Sync matches the audio to your compatible BRAVIA TV. Dual Center Speaker uses a second speaker to more accurately replicate sound when using a large screen. Center Speaker Lift raises the center speaker sound to match what's on TV.
Wireless Audio
Thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Ethernet connectivity, you can stream music, podcasts, and internet radio from a local media library or hundreds of online services. The STR-AZ5000ES supports Spotify Connect, Chromecast built-in, and Apple AirPlay to expand your streaming options.
Works with Sonos
The STR-AZ5000ES is made to work with your existing SONOS speaker system. From the SONOS app, you can turn on the receiver, switch to the desired input, and adjust the volume.
Voice Control
Using Google Assistant and working with Google Home, the STR-AZ5000ES can connect to compatible smart speakers in your home, letting you use your voice through them to operate the receiver.
Sony Music Center
With the Sony Music Center app installed on your smartphone or tablet, you can remotely control various aspects of the STR-AZ5000ES. Control source selection, zone, sound field, volume, media playback, and setup your voice assistant.
Roon Tested
Seamlessly integrate the STR-AZ5000ES with your Roon system for full access to all of your music, including digital files and streaming services in one place.
Robust Construction
The solidly built STR-AZ5000ES features a newly designed frame beam base chassis with an increased thickness for additional rigidity. Inside is a new DAC that supports 32-bit processing of PCM and direct native DSD signals. There are also a variety of newly designed components and circuit boards that all work to reduce resonance, lower impedance, and provide a more stable, clear audio signal.

It states that it only supports 120v. Is that really true? Or is that just the sticker on the outside (like so often the case)??
Asked by: Elmar
That is correct, according to the manufacturer it only supports 120v.
